One-point-one million total Missouri residents are expected to vote on Tuesday, which is encouraging to candidates and state party representatives.

Missouri Republican Party spokesman Paul Sloca says the diversity of the Republican candidates will bring voters out in large numbers.

Run Time: 00:08
Description: "We just think that there will be a lot of interest in this because again, you have three different candidates with three different visions for Missouri and for the nation."

State Democratic spokesman Jack Cardetti says his party also expects voter numbers in the Democratic primary to reach near-record numbers.

One-point-one million total voters are expected to cast their ballot in Missouri on Tuesday.  

State Democratic spokesman Jack Cardetti says he expects the young vote to play a major factor in the primary. 

Actuality:  CARDET1.WAV
Run Time: 00:09
Description: "Any time you can engage young people and get them excited about the election, that's a great thing and it's a great thing for Democrats because when young people go to the polls, they vote heavily Democratic."


State Republican Party spokesman Paul Sloca, however, said he couldn't pin point a single group that would carry the Republican vote.

If the twenty-eight percent of Missourians expected to vote tomorrow do so, the number of primary voters will have more than doubled from 2004.

The Missouri Secretary of State office says one-point-one million voters are expected to cast their ballot in the state primary.

Voters have had to choose quickly which candidate they like after recent bid withdrawals.

State Democratic spokesman Jack Cardetti says John Edwards supporters could determine the Democratic outcome.

Actuality:  CARDET2.WAV
Run Time: 00:09
Description: "The Edwards supporters, who do they now go to the polls and vote for on Tuesday: Senator Clinton or is it Senator Obama? That may be, in a real close election, that could make all the difference."

Voters will be allowed to choose from a pool of twenty seven different candidates from three separate parties.
